… That’s better. Here’s what Gavin has to say about his charitable efforts:

“Setting off on Sunday October 30th and arriving in London on Friday November 18th, my route will take me south through many regions.

“I have planned in lots of stops at charities that have been helped by Children In Need, including my hometown of Pudsey.

“I am also hoping to have friends and colleagues – or anyone wishing to – join me in Star Wars replica costumes throughout my journey.

“The walk is going to be around 400 miles and should take me two-and-a-half weeks to complete.

“I want to coincide the date that I arrive at the studios to the big night of Children In Need to have as much impact as possible in order to raise as much as I can for this magnificent cause.

“My route will take me through Leeds and Pudsey.”
